very dear to my heart -- see the cultural arts in china. we attended an opera in the beijing opera house. we also had a tour of the chinese national theater. part of the reason for my visit is exploring opportunities for our students and teachers to have exchange opportunities in china and our hosts were most appreciative when i was able to explain the deep value that we have in san francisco public schools for languages and language emersion programs. they're looking forward to having their teachers come visit us as much as we are about visiting them. before i go further i would like to present this formal letter of agreement that i signed. don't worry, i didn't enter any contract, but i did sign a formal letter of undering between the san francisco unified school district and the bureau of education of hangzow stating we're going to continue to talk about establishing this relationship where our teachers will be able to study in china and vice versa and our students and principals will also have that opportunity. so i'd like to present this to you on behalf of the delegation

started a class on cloud computing. three years ago, i started a class at the university in beijing as well on this subject because i feel it is really important. we are in my opinion in the second year of a 20-year cycle that is no different than the client server cycle that happened last time around, and i think education is an important component of this. so i'm going to take my four or five minutes to educate you guys a little bit on what is this thing we call cloud computing. i'm going to try uses much plain english as i can, leave all the technical buzzwords aside, and try to eliminate -- illuminate for you what is happening. fundamentally, is an economic thing that is happening, and that is what has always driven technologies economics. i will get to that in a minute. i do a lot of public speaking. i was counting today because i had to do something this morning. over the past six months, i have talked to 5000 people about cloud computing. what i've tried to do with them and what i've tried to do with you is tried to explain cloud computing in a way you could explain to your f
to actually give up, contemplate giving up on its nuclear weapons program, it's china. >> reporter: beijing's interest will be its own. it's about what china wants: economic stability in northeast asia and a non- nuclear korean peninsula on its doorstep. beijing doesn't like the pressure and thinks washington could do more. >> the chinese are very keen to just get back to any kind of talks. i mean, in fact, the chinese regularly tell me, if obama would just pick up the phone and talk to kim jong un, we could solve this whole thing. >> reporter: all parties know north korea is vulnerable. it desperately needs a good harvest to feed its 25 million people - including millions who may be on the brink of starvation. that's why beijing won't ratchet up the pressure. >> the chinese don't want to cause a regime collapse. that's their number 1 nightmare scenario, really. so, by cutting off aid to that extent, they would essentially be bringing on the one thing they're trying most to avoid. >> reporter: in coming days, north korea's military will be pressed into service in their tens, or even hundred
of cooperation to go -- by way of heightened tensions between washington and beijing is to elevate tensions to the level where the chinese come in and basically ask all the parties to exercise restraint, backtrack on some of these cooperative areas and, essentially, start to get the triggering of criticism from washington that china is coddling north korea rather than reining in an ally during a very criticals calculation period. the element here that i think we can see in terms of this almost north korean ratcheting up of tensions and getting the type of reaction that would invoke some aspect of a response from china is the u.s. use of their b-52 bombers last week and their b-2 bombers now. although those are cleary a message designed -- clearly a message designed for the north korean regime, that's the deterrent stance of the united states in north korea is very strong and something that shouldn't be invoked at any time, you know, try to counsel north korea not to engage, for certain respects in china -- elements in the china, those types of capabilities right at their doorstep feeds into
